Being an observant person can sometimes be realllly hard to do, and if you were lucky enough to be born with certain astrological traits you may naturally be observant based upon your zodiac sign's natal chart.

To be observant, however you have to learn how to take in your surroundings and be aware of everything going on without looking creepy for listening in on people's conversations — being observant is like being a fly on the wall.

And I'm not saying that you should listen to other people's conversations, but when you're the fly on the wall, it's sometimes hard to believe the number of things people will say or do in front of you when they think no one is paying attention.

As an Aquarius zodiac sign, I like being observant. I think it's really interesting to see people in their natural habitat, how they interact with others and how their body language is different than everyone else around them.

I find that a lot of people who tend to be more observant like me are very often introspective or introverted people, like I am. Perhaps it's a familiar trait of people within a particular horoscope tribe.

While I do like meeting new people, it's sometimes nice to just sit back and let everyone else do the talking and entertaining.

Plus, I find that I can learn a LOT more about new people when I can observe them in an objective way, rather than just talking to them.

It's kind of like stalking someone on social media and seeing what they're like when you're not involved. A little creepy, yes, but also kind of fun.

Just because a zodiac sign is observant doesn't mean they are necessarily introverted.

In fact, it's not always so much about removing yourself from a situation to see how someone acts, but just being someone who can read others well.

You might be a pro at reading body language or you might be able to empathize with the emotions of others.

Both of those things can make you an observant person — and all without having to be a wallflower.

Every zodiac sign is really good at reading something about others, but only a few can read people like books.

These are the ones who know exactly what to say when you need to hear it and are really good at picking up on the little things.

And frankly, if you ask me, everyone should have at least one observant zodiac sign in their life because it really makes you feel like you always have someone there who knows you inside and out without you always having to explain yourself.

It also means that they know when you're lying or hiding something, but that just comes with the territory.

Just know that you can never really hide anything from these observant zodiac signs because they know how to read you like a book, according to astrology.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is one of the most observant signs of the zodiac and it’s almost impossible to know for sure just how much she notices about people. You might think that, as a really good friend and listener, that she just naturally knows everything about you, but don’t be fooled; Virgo has a lot of tricks up her sleeve that not a lot of people know about.

She’s like a detective — always looking at the little clues to help her crack a case. Virgo can read pretty much anyone like a book, thanks to her incredible ability to pay attentions to even the smallest of small details.

Say something once and she’ll remember it forever. As a Virgo, she’s naturally analytical, so she’s constantly looking for clues to help her read you — even if you’re not telling her the whole story – and will often surprise you with how much she knows.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio would much rather observe than be observed, so she takes a lot of precautions to make sure that she has the upper hand when getting to know people. She often won’t reveal everything about herself to you – even if she’s known you forever – because she likes to keep her true self under lock and key. So, naturally she tends to fly under everyone else’s radar and watch everyone around her.

She does this (the observing and locking her true self away) usually to protect herself. She hates being betrayed and getting hurt, and she NEVER forgets when people have wronged her, so being observant is her way of keeping herself safe. What makes her so good at reading you like a book is the fact that she’s always got a sneaky eye on you and an ability to predict your next move.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is much more reserved than a lot of the other zodiac signs, but that only makes it easier for her to observe people in their natural habitats – AKA her way of seeing the real you. She uses her quiet, introverted natural to sit back and watch everything going on around her. She can be so good at observing others than a lot of the time, you don’t even realize how much she’s noticed.

Because Capricorn spends a lot of her time being the fly on the wall, she’s able to read you like a book because she’s had a lot of time to read your body language and intonations. So, whenever you need to vent or need someone to talk to but don’t know how to bring it up, Capricorn is the type of person to know something is up from a mile away.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is one of the naturally curious zodiac signs who are always looking for new experiences and to meet new people. Because of this naturally interest she has in people, it's easy to see how she would be naturally drawn to observing others. Aquarius loves getting to know people not just by what they say, but how they say it and through their body language. 

Because of her ability to observe you for more than just what everyone else sees on the surface, Aquarius is able to read you like her favorite book. She can observe the environment you're in and how you handle it to get to know you almost as well as you know yourself. Aquarius can even tap into her more reflective, introspective side to quietly observe people in situations she might not be comfortable in yet.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces is what is known as an empath, which means that she is able to empathize with and anticipate your emotions - sometimes even before you can figure out what you're feeling. Because she is so in touch with her own feelings, she knows how to be sensitive to others' feelings, too. This type of observation is subtle, but still very effective.

When Pisces is empathizing with you and feeling whatever you're feeling, it makes it super easy for her to read you like a book. So much so that it can feel like she's somehow in your brain - except not in a weird way. Really, having Pisces read you like a book is like having a best friend that can read your mind.
